Travel Tips for Kilkenny

Ride some of the the Ring of...

by Shar

Ride some of the the Ring of Kerry. There's plenty of paths from Kilarney out. Riding around (well part of) the Ring of Kerry. Such a gorgeous scenery over the lake and all the green trees. We stopped and climbed up a hill for a great view over it all. So peaceful - its truely a soul soothing (and leg strengthening) day out.

Rain Gear is Your Friend

by ErinInMD

Good walking shoes, warm clothes and rain gear are a must. While in Kilkenny, it started to pour down rain and I had to take cover under a tree. Even with an umbrella, the rain will still find a way to get you wet! Be sure to have something to keep your camera dry when the rain comes. Oh, and it will surely come! While waiting for the rain to let up (and it always seems to stop after a short while), use the opportunity to chat with the locals. The picture is of a nice gentleman I met while taking cover under a tree. I look like a drowned rat, but it's all good.

Kells Priory

by sue_stone

Kells Priory is located in the small village of Kells, 13km south of Kilkenny.

It is an ancient monastic site that dates back to the 12th Century.

Visitors are free to explore - there are no tour guides/admission charges or many people.

Just wander around and soak up the atmosphere with the sheep!

It is located 800 metres east of Kells on the Stonyford Road

''Classy'' Night-club

by caribou_ire about Langtons Bar & Club

Langtons promotes itself as somewhat of an 'upper class' nightclub, yet one would hardly believe this once inside. The sticky floors and overcrowded dancefloor seem to suggest other wise. These atributes however are common place in nightclubs around Kilkenny, and if you're after mainstream-pop-music-filled frolics, maybe this is the place for you. The age group ranges from 16years old to around 45years, maybe even older, it's so hard to thell these days : ) Come to think of it, there mey be people younger too.As i said, its so difficult to tell!!
During the summer, Thursday nights are free beofre 11pm and these are the only nights i would consider going. I don't think spending 13euro to get in can be justified in any way! Because there's no entrance fee on thursdays, these nights are going to be busy. Admidetly i have had one or two fun nights there, albeit, i probably would have had as much fun if i was in a field drinking with my friends... It's unlikely you'd get in wearing white runners, although i do recall seeing 'Pop idol' Simon Casey there once with his bright white adidas runners. He probably got in for free too!
Try to look neat and tidy, and you should have no problem.

Kytelers is a must see !

by Sylvander about Kytelers Inn

Kytelers Inn, the former home of Lady De Kyteler, is an imposing 14th Century medieval tavern in Keiran St., Kilkenny. Legend surrounds Lady de Kyteler; She was beautiful and rich, having outlived four husbands (some say she poisoned them). She was accused of Witchcraft by the townsfolk, but how much of the charges were truth and how much based on jealousy or spite is unclear. Despite being found guilty, she escaped her punishment by fleeing to England (aided by influential contacts). Her maidservant was not as fortunate, and took the punishment on her behalf - whipped through the streets and burnt at the stake.

The restaurant in the cellar is very atmospheric, tables spread out amongst the darkened pillars and arches, light flickering from the candles and large open fire.
To top it all the food is superb !!

We enjoyed it so much we seriously considered ignoring the rest of Kilkenny and returning again on our second night. We will definitely be going back again.... I enjoyed the fillet steak and jacket potato immensely, washed down with a few pints of Kilkenny's finest Smithwicks Ale. My fair lady companion had the mouthwatering Chicken O Dell. Expect to pay 12 to 20 Euro for your main course.
